Gift Ideas



When you send these cards start with the light ones and proceed to the darker ones:



Here is what I spent too much on at Christmas. I mean, what the fuck is that about? You spend money on cool shit and just GIVE IT AWAY? Unbelievable.




I bought the plates at Walrus. They have good taste and appear to be nice folks.

HOW do I get on your Christmas list? I would murder for those plates, they are so badass.

Substance McGravitas said...

Short of murder you may be able to get in touch with the kooky Germans who make them. Maybe I should include a local plug.

Substance McGravitas said...

Store where I got them. Overall good taste.

Smut Clyde said...

For next $mas you can buy me a Nomi Chi painting.

vacuumslayer said...

Oooooh, pretty!

I still rate for these, however.

Still, I may have to have those Frankenstein plates. They're extremely cool.

vacuumslayer said...

I checked Nomi Chi's 'store" and found nothing there. Bet I can find her stuff somewhere, though. Gorgeous, interesting stuff.

Substance McGravitas said...

I'll bet if you wrote her she'd be thrilled.

The style seems familiar...I think I saw something on the street in front of the art gallery that was similar that I liked...maybe it's the current trend here, or maybe it was her.

It's definitely reminiscent of a lot of stuff I've seen and liked.

What I was thinking of. I believe the two creatures are sitting on a narwhal. The artist had a friend whose art was hung on the fence but was off doing something. The tattoo place Chi works at is a couple of blocks away.

That's incredibly cute and cool and reminds me of an artist I worship from afar.

Also, it's odd knowing I have almost the exact same haircut as TLD. (I just got all my hair chopped off.)

I guess it comes under "pop surrealism" but there are probably narrower labels for them what wants them.
Has anyone brought her to Boing Boing's attention?

Substance McGravitas said...

That would be a nice thing to do, wouldn't it? She's got that hep tattoo angle the kids who won't get off my lawn seem to love.

Substance McGravitas said...

Via a convenient link on Chi's blog I am guessing The Lovely Daughter was yakking with Kristian Adam.

vacuumslayer said...

Can any artist be be brought to their attention the also artist asked.

Substance McGravitas said...

There's a SUBMIT link at the top of Boing Boing's page. I've submitted a few things, can't recall if they got posted. MetaFilter is also good.

How many times have I heard those words (& in that order) before something that ended badly?

SOME of them tasted GREAT.
